John Bradshaw - The Teddy Bear
In 1916 a 10 year old Canadian girl sent a gift to her father, who was serving as a medic on the western front during World War One. She said it was to help keep him safe, and to remind him of home. After he was killed during the Battle of Passchendaele, the Teddy Bear she'd sent was found in his pocket. It's now in the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa. He kept it with him to remind him of his children, who he hadn't seen in two and a half years.
What reminds you of God? What you look to, so that God might be kept constantly in your mind? You know, Jesus keeps something with him that reminds him of you. Isaiah 49:16 says, "Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands". The scars on Jesus hands, even now, remind him of his great love for you. Keep this in mind: Jesus is thinking of you today. I'm John Bradshaw for It Is Written.
